, with all the republicans' talk about wanting to shrink the deficit, they would have us borrow 700 billion dollars, over the next 10 years, to give a tax cut of about $100,000 each, to folks who are already millionaires. let me be clear to mr. boehner and everybody else, we should not hold middle class tax cuts hostage any longer.

enough to assume majority accountability in our actions that the public can and should hold us accountable for all we intend to do. that's why you see an attempt to try to be a reasoned party in this document. i think at the root of it all, of all the frustration is americans are tired of politicians who continue to promise things they can't deliver. >> greta: i've been critical of the democrats bringing up the issue of the tax cuts the extension of tax cuts on the eve of midterms that could have been discussed before. dream act certain segment of the population. now today you and other republicans go to a small business and also unveil this. where have you been or why now? why is that not the same sort of criticism as a stunt on the eve of the midterms? >> greta, if you look at proposals in the document, we have been about these proposals for sometime. we've been engaged in conversation with people, asking them what they thought of our stimulus plan? our plan was focused on small business help and providing tax relief to small businesses. that's in our plan. >> greta: i don't

the american people are behind us on these issues and one of the attorney generals said we are doing what congress should have done. >> one comment. this is going to the u.s. supreme court probably going to be a 5-4 decision. they will say the commerce clause applies. five are going our way. i'm going to predict that right now this is the greatest intrusion by the federal government in the commerce laws ever in history that's why they are bailing out like attorney general strickland said and trying to go on the tax issue. we went on that too, there's nothing in the law that allows them to do this. nothing in the constitution that allows the kind of tax they are proposing. they are weak on this, we are going to win. >> greta: alabama, what is your reaction? >> folks in alabama are like folks across the country. they feel disinfranchised, they feel like their rights were trampled. they weren't buying votes with their own money they were using our known buy votes for things we don't want. whether it was ben nelson's deal the deal over in louisiana, in alabama, i think we long for the good ol

have been painfully blunt. gutless is the term we used to describe the democrats for not voting before the midterm election on extending the bush tax cut the new york time editorial page has joined our chorus. big letterhead line the democrats profiles in timidity. that he the democrats of lacking convictions that is rough. republican senator lindsey graham joins you live. the "new york times" are going after the democrats heavy. >> that is unusual. i would rather agree with you than "the new york times" being an conservative but we -- they are right. the issue needs to be voted on before the next election. if you raise taxes on anyone from 35% to 39.6 on anybody, you raise taxes is a bad idea. and we should have the courage of our convictions, i'm willing to go to the floor and cast a vote against raising taxes on anybody regardless of how it mate be perceived by people. >> greta: "the new york times" is in favor of the way the president would like, extend it for everyone who makes less than $250,000. what "the new york times" is slamming the democrats about is they won't bother to br
stewart and more. sarah palin joins us live from alaska. good evening governor. >> hi, greta how are you? >> greta: very well. right to delaware. can christine o'donnell win the united states senate seat and is she going to win? >> i think she suit absolutely can win. she need -- i think she absolutely can win. she needs to stay on -- stay focused. funny we are learning more about christine o'donnell and her college years and her teenaged years and her financial dealings than anybody ever bothered to ask about barack hugh seen obama candidate and now our president. she is -- doing great she is going to win. >> greta: her opponent chris coons is getting a lot of press, aggressive reporting on something he wrote 25 years ago. when he was in college about whether he was a bearded marxist or not is that fair to go after him? >> i think it is fair to dig in somebody's past, if you will and find out their associates and beliefs and what formed their beliefs. more important is coons' position today on growing government and his desire to join with the extreme left, the democrats in congress and
, weakening the storm a little bit. but that's a player for us coming up. i will show you that. remember that. this is the storm and what's been happening, there has been high pressure that the storm has been moving around and it's continuing to pull off to the north-northwest. we have been saying it's going to make that right-hand turn. it's exactly where the high pressure builds. and sure enough tmade this right-hand turn, that will keep it from making a direct impact across the outer banks. then we see a trough, a really strong system, the first fall air mass of the year is pulling in. this is the jet stream. these are the strongest winds we have in the atmosphere, they are going to quickly become the main steering force for the storm, pulling it off to the northeast. we will have the storm here tonight. by tomorrow night, up around cape cod and the islands. so a very quick-moving storm that will bring very big impacts for the next 24 hours. >> all right. thanks very much. well, heavy rains already hitting the outer banks of north carolina. the national hurricane center reporting winds of
